India's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Hardeep Puri, was asked to remove his turban during a security check in Houston Airport. Despite of his diplomatic status, officials continued the search.
When Puri protested against this, he was made to wait for over half-an-hour in a 'holding room'.
This incident happened around a couple weeks ago, but popped up after India raised strong concerns over the pat-down search of Meera Kumar.
Meera Shankar was subjected to a pat-down on Dec 9 when she was leaving from Jackson-Evers International Airport after attending a function in Mississippi State University. Despite of her diplomatic status, she was pulled up for apparently wearing a sari.
Later, External Affairs Minister SM Krishna told media on Monday, Dec 13 that India had discussed the issues with US officials and will be soon be sorted out.
